Broadway Road in Phoenix 85040 and is free to attend and open to the public.  Families can register at www.azpbs.org/funday.

Parents and kids ages 5-8 will play together in educational, fun games, where the kids will be the “agents,” solving “Odd Problems” that involve “Stealth Math” and “Wacky Gadgets.”

All kids who successfully complete the game passport will receive an Odd Squad agent badge. There will also be other activities for the younger and older siblings to participate in, so the whole family can join in the fun.

Each of the games are designed to be a two-hour experience, so each child and accompanying adult should register separately for their preferred schedule time. Children must be accompanied by an adult to participate. Space is limited, so registration is required.
